Here is the saloon layout I previously posted... I toned it up in Digi Paint class on Friday. I think this is pretty much the feel I want. I definitely want the focus to be the saloon doors; hence the greatest contrast there.
I am excited to start the colour version, as then I can begin to play with textures and such. Mike [our prof] gave me the tip of putting the most detail on the elements in the foreground, and then less detail as you work back.
ie. Most detail on the bottle on the table in the lower right corner, much less detail on the clock on the wall. Then your eye will be led to the doors, where it should be.
Sounds simple....but we shall see! I tend to paint in Photoshop for ever and ever and ever and ever... sometimes I wish you couldn't undo - like in real painting! I'd be able to move on much quicker. :)
